Born and raised in Kenya, ethnically Indian and educated in England, my formative years truly shaped who I would become. Surrounded by entrepreneurial family during the 80s and 90s, as the world went through its rapidest change, I experienced the way living changed around us. The rise of personal computers, phones, rapidly changing economic development and ultimately shifts in social class, I always knew I wanted to be an entrepreneur, the only difference was I didn’t want it just for the money. To me it represented the greatest way I could make impact in the world.
I went onto study Business Management at University and was deeply troubled at how commerce and industry was having such a negative impact on our planet at every level, whether it was disgruntled workers or to environmental disasters. Equally I saw how Business could be used as a force for good and truly create social change, when adapted with more than profit in mind.
I went onto to join Accenture as a Management Consultant and made it my mission to understand the construct of corporates and institutions alike. I utimately knew that in order to illicit change we needed to understand where the issues lay, what caused them and not just how we could fix them, but more so how could we change them.
Through my solution driven approach with my clients, I found that Entrepreneurialism is the most effective and efficient way to achieve world change.
